Ukraine will continue negotiations on diversification of deliveries of energy carriers, in particular natural gas, with objective of maintenance of a power security. The Prime minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov said this at the Viennese economic forum «The Innovation: expansion of innovative space».

"Ukraine depends on 100 % on deliveries of the Russian energy carriers, and sometimes we are confronted with the fact that the prices established for us are not optimal, in my opinion. Therefore now we make every effort organize energy deliveries from other countries," the Prime Minister of Ukraine emphasized. He added that this year a project will be launched for the construction of a liquefied natural gas terminal, which would take about 10 billion cubic meters of gas. In addition, the head of government says, Ukraine is negotiating energy supplies with Azerbaijan and Central Asian countries.

Besides Mykola Azarov said that Ukraine has significant potential in scientific, innovative, transit and agrarian branches.

At the same time the Prime Minister of Ukraine noted that Ukraine welcomed the Danube initiatives and that Ukraine stated port modernization, which would assist navigation to the route Danube-Black Sea.

Azarov also said yesterday he had held a fruitful discussion with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin about rising energy prices. According to the results of the negotiations, it was agreed to continue consultations on this issue.
